debootstrap error on pogoplug E02

I'm trying to get debian running on my pogoplug without much success.

I've seen a few posts with the same problem I'm having, but I can't get their solutions to work.

I I have my usb drive set up and I run

cd /tmp 
wget http://projects.doozan.com/debian/dockstar.debian-squeeze.sh 
chmod +x dockstar.debian-squeeze.sh 
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin:/sbin

It gets stuck at:
# Starting debootstrap installation
E: unrecognized or invalid option --no-check-gpg
debootstrap failed.
See /tmp/debian/debootstrap/debootstrap.log for more information.
That error log does not exist.

So I remount / with rw, remove the debootstrap files in /usr/sbin and /usr/share, then run it again. Same error. Reboot, try again, same error.

Running ./debootstrap --version gives me this:
debootstrap 1.0.26+squeeze1

What else can I try? I had Arch installed at one point, but I'm much more familiar with Debian, so I'd love to get that running if at all possible.

Download the 3.16 rootfs as recommended here, it should run with stock or older u-boot:

Later, you can install new u-boot:
